“We’re proud and honored to add this prestigious CES accolade to our portfolio of award-winning products,” says James Chan, Vice President, Marketing at Mitsubishi Electric Visual Solutions America, Inc. “This validation reinforces our mission to offer unique, high-quality performance and tremendous value to customers who want a true, immersive home theater experience, and realize that there are better alternatives in the marketplace than commoditized flat screens.”

The Best of Innovations honor is awarded to the products with the highest judges’ scores and will be featured in the Innovations Design and Engineering Showcase at the 2012 International CES.
Mitsubishi’s 92-inch 3D DLP Home Cinema TV will be displayed at the 2012 International CES, which runs Jan. 10-13, 2012 in Las Vegas. Honorees will also be displayed at CES Unveiled: the official press event of the International CES from 4 p.m. – 7 p.m. on Sunday, Jan. 8 in the Venetian Ballroom of the Venetian.

• Aesthetic and design qualities
• The product’s intended use/function and user value
• Unique/novel features that consumers would find attractive
• How the design and innovation of the product compares to other products in the marketplace
